02. Betrayed

You pay your taxes, you pay the rent, till you haven't got a cent
It's the law of the jungle, if you got the hunger
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Just hold on to what you got (hold on, hold on), just live it to the last drop
You can't help it, you just can't stop
Betrayed, yeah, life's a bitch, so just don't feel
Betrayed, no, you ain't the only one who's been betrayed, betrayed

Stone cold and all alone, and you're wearin' everything you own
They bare your flesh and strip your soul, but underneath you got a heart of gold
Just hold on to what you got (hold on, hold on)

Betrayed, you ain't satisfied, I know you feel betrayed
You ain't crucified, so get real, betrayed, betrayed

All alone, far from home, and you're feelin' cold as stone
Don't give up, don't give in, life's a bitch if you lose or win

Betrayed - yeah, you ain't the only one who's been
Betrayed - life's a bitch, if you lose or win - betrayed, betrayed

Betrayed, betrayed


09. Cadillac Dreams

When I was seventeen, found out just what it means
If you can get it free, it just ain't worth a damn
When I heard the preacher say, don't throw your life away
I got that message, and I wrote it on the wall

I don't want anybody tellin' me lies, no, I don't want your diamond ring
'Cause you ain't got my size

I want money, money, that's what I need,
I got Cadillac dreams, please mister don'tcha take it from me
Give me money, money, more than I need, I got Cadillac dreams waitin' on me
Cadillac dreams, Cadillac dreams

When I had the young boy blues, I paid some young boy dues
I learned the hard way, there's a heartbreak every day

Stone cold reality came crashing down on me
Well life was hard on me, but I still don't give a damn

When I was seventeen I was an angry young man
But I won't let just anybody tell me who I am

I just want money, money, that's all I need
I got Cadillac dreams, hey mister don'tcha take it from me
Give me money, money, more than I need, these Cadillac dreams are waitin' on me

Didn't have the time of day, till this dream was born
You can't take that away, you can't take that away from me

When I was seventeen, there was this beauty queen
Checked in a one room suite, the back seat of my car

When you want all the best things money can buy
You gotta reach down inside of you, to reach up to the sky

Yeah, I want money, money, that's all I need
I got Cadillac dreams, hey mister you can't take that from me
I want money, money, more than I need, I got Cadillac dreams waitin' on me

Money, money, that's what I need
We're drivin' in my Chevy with my Cadillac dreams
Someday, one day, just you and me
We'll ride inside these Cadillac dreams


15. Boomerang

Gonna throw down the dice on a roll, it's a showdown, gonna walk on hot coals
Cut the deck, better place your bet, 'cause the game ain't over yet
Wanna keep you under lock and key, can't you see what you do to me
Get the noose, I know I'm gonna hang, 'cause you're like a boomerang, boomerang

On the way up, you change your tune, so pay up, and it ain't too soon
Can't make up or break up, can't feel a thing, you want a piece of everything

First you're cold and then you're hot, you're in the mood and then you're not
Yeah, I know I'll get a bang, 'cause you're like a boomerang, boomerang

You can slip and you can slide, but there ain't nothin' you can hide
You just can't say no, well here I come, baby, and here I go

A boomerang, a boomerang
